A School Improvement-Accountability Process Kit. PAK No. 2.1--Goals Revision--Gathering Concerns.
Landry, Leonard P.; And Others
This Personalized Activity Kit describes various ways to gather school/community concerns--questionnaires, student speak-outs, community concerns conferences, and interviews. A variety of methods should be used in gathering concerns. Concerns gathering usually begins with an identification of current district goals. From the list of goals, a questionnaire can be drafted to sample public opinion. Some important guidelines for drawing up the questionnaire are to keep the questionnaire and the questions brief and to the point, to include options to praise as well as criticize school operations, and to decide beforehand how the information is to be recorded and reported. A trial run or pilot test of the questionnaire should be accomplished prior to its widespread use. Appendixes contain guidelines, exercises, activities, and other related information. (Author/IRT)
